Still Blogging On The Road

Category: Miscellaneous — Chuck @ 12:35 pm

Carl WeathersbyI almost hate pointing you to my road blogging but I’ve been doing so much of it that it’s been difficult to find time to post much here. Right now I’m in Tinley Park, IL on a cross country trip with a convoy of vehicles that’s commemorating the 50 year anniversary of the interstate highway system. You can follow all the action here: http://domesticfuel.com/?cat=31. It is a lot of long days but sometimes I get a break like last night at Buddy Guy’s Legends in downtown Chicago.

I went to see the awesome blues guitarist, Carl Weathersby, who was greatly influenced growing up by Albert King. Here’s a video clip of him so you can get a taste of some fine Chicago blues: Watch wmv file Carl Weathersby (1 min WMV)

I remember growing up out off Cattlemen’s Road in Sarasota. The house I lived in through early teens was torn down so they could pave I-75 over it. I can still find the exact spot since some of the trees I remember in the fields/pastures nearby are still there (last time I was through). After we moved from there to Longboat Key we moved a number of times around the city before I went off to U of F.

More On The School Demolition Project

Category: School News — Chuck @ 4:18 pm

Remember my post about the school board decision to tear down the old school? Well, there’s another story in the Sarasota Herald Tribune about it which you can find here.

Apparently there’s opposition and it just doesn’t sound to me from the stories like the preservationists are being given much consideration.

I wrote a letter to the editor drawing attention to your comments on the post back in February. Feel free to chime in if you’d like.

Blogging From Nashville This Week

Category: Miscellaneous — Chuck @ 7:53 am

Hi Rams Fans. Just thought I’d post a hello since it’s been a while. The reunion is coming up soon. I’ve already started working on how I’m going to schedule it in. I’ve got an event in Madison, WI that week that I am going to have to sub contract someone to take care of for me in order to be in Sarasota.

Have you registered yet? I haven’t and I hope to get that taken care of soon. Life is staying busy. You saw that I was in Indy for the big race. This week it’s in Nashville for the CMA Music Fest. I won’t bore you with pictures of the stars. You can find my posts from here on my AgWired site. Then starting next week I’ll be travelling coast to coast with the “Celebrate the Interstate” caravan. It’s a group of vehicles commemorating the 50 year anniversary of the interstate system. You can learn all about it on their website.

So, what’s going on in your worlds? Let me know I will share.
